Overpriced bakery

Overpriced bakery, French names don't justify the cost. Roomy restaurant, nice quiet place to meet with friends or for business. If you like to over pay for Starbucks, this is the bakery for you.

On a vacation to visit family in Houston, we visited this location on Beechnut for lunch on a weekday. I was intrigued by a new salad, "Roasted Vegetable, Chicken & Goat Cheese." It did not disappoint! I liked it so much that I returned a few days later and had it again! The service was fast and high-quality, whether it... More

A bit crowded, but the food and service were good. My friend and I had a good time visiting with each other.

I went to get dessert and pastries to take-away, not a full meal. Quality is solid given the low prices. It's a relatively charmless chain but good in a pinch.

This review is for the location in the Meyerland Plaza Shopping Center location. Food here is okay and there is plenty of selection from the menu. Desserts are also surprisingly good. Anyway, not sure if there is a lot of turnover of staff but there are times that some staff are not comfortable with their jobs and duties. We were... More

The salad dressing was full of HFCS, the rice tasted microwaved, and the staff all seemed to be on their first day of work. Also the wine available was terrible. i had rosemary roasted chicken...

While the food is always really good, this restaurant is pretty pricey for a place where you have to serve yourself. The atmosphere is delightful with a wood burning fireplace and very nice decor. But again, I'm used to being served for these prices! Really do like the outdoor seating.
